My first LeTote Select review

LeTote is trying something like Stitch Fix. They charge a $20 styling fee. They send 4 items. You have 5 days to send anything you don’t like back. First, let me explain what LeTote is. I’ve been using them off and on (mostly on) for 2-3 years. They are basically a rental clothing service. I get what they call the classic box. They send me 3 clothing items and two accessories to wear, and then I send everything back whenever I want. You can also keep the whole box or whatever item you want at a discount.

You can get as many Totes as you want. I usually keep my totes for 2-3 weeks. I have a referral link that can give you a FREE tote. That is a pretty good deal.

Anyhow, I’m not sure whether LeTote Select is available to everyone yet or just regular LeTote members. I will update this post once I know. Here is what I received in my first LeTote Select:

letoteselect1

Noir mesh v neck top – price $58

I kept this item. I didn’t have enough black tops, so I was glad to get this. I’ve already worn it once. Love it.

letoteselect2

Cece watercolor floral top – price $99

I wanted to like this top. I tried it on several times. It was a flattering fit. But I don’t like wearing pink. Fuchsia is fine, but not pink. I sent this back.

letoteselect3

Octavia tiered ruffle maxi dress – price $82

I love maxi dresses and wear them all throughout the summer. I wanted to love this dress, but once again it is PINK, and I think it is rather plain. I sent it back.

Octavia double jacquard cardigan – price $ 72 (now on sale for $29)

I was planning on keeping this until the very last moment. I like the cardigan, but I don’t love it. If it were only $29, when they sent it to me, I would have kept it. But they wanted $72 for it which isn’t unrealistic for a cardigan but a little too much for something I only liked.

My total was $38 for the black tank since I already paid the $20 styling fee. Overall, I thought they did okay, and I told them that when I sent back the survey. The biggest problem I had with them is that I’ve been a customer for 2-3 years and they know what kind of clothes I like. YET, they went out of their way to send clothes I might not like, and I didn’t. I don’t know why they did that. It ended up backfiring.

If you like LeTote regular clothes, I would recommend you try LeTote Select. Maybe I should have been more specific with my requests. I told them I wanted summer pieces similar to clothes I already liked from them. Besides the cardigan, I guess they did that. I might try them again, or I might stick with Stitch Fix. I get the most compliments when I wear Stitch Fix clothing.

Thanks for reading. šŸ™‚

LeTote review & giveaway

I have a giveaway! LeTote is giving me a chance to give away three totes to 3 different people. So the person would get one box (AKA tote) free. A tote consists of 3 clothing items and two accessories. Accessories include jewelry, scarves, and purses. I don’t know how long this giveaway will last because they didn’t inform me. If you are interested, just comment on this entry or respond to me on Twitter (thesewalls). Or snapchat me (kat3x5). The first three people that comment will receiveĀ a free tote. I will erase this when the giveaway is over.

All I need is an email address, and they ask for a first and last name. I guessĀ initials might work so you don’t have to give me your full name.

What is LeTote? A fashion subscription service. You borrow clothes and accessories to wear, and you can send them back in 3 days, 3 weeks, or 3 months. Your choice. LeTote charges you monthly. Ā OR you can purchase the clothes with a nice discount. They have items from Vince Camuto, Jessica Simpson, BCBGeneration, Free People, Splendid and more.

This is my 3rd time using LeTote. I love their clothes for the most part. I wish they had more bottoms. I have never gotten a pair of jeans. You can browse their clothes without signing up. Here is what I received in my third tote:

Brand/name: Summer & Sage Melange drape front jacket.

letote12

Brand/name: Octavia Navajo sweater cardigan

letote11

Brand/name: Ava turtleneck tunic

letote13

Brand/name: Clement dew drops necklace

letote14

Brand name: Cami royal purple drops

letote15

I LOVED my third tote especially the cardigans. I like how they sort of tried to match pieces. They sent me two cardigans because I love cardigans. I could have kept the whole tote for about $160 and if I weren’t doing Stitch Fix, I would have kept all of the items. My least favorite item was the earrings. When I first saw them, I was in awe. (Purple is my favorite color). Ā But they were too heavy for my taste. I wore them out once. I kept the tote for 10 days and then sent it back for another box.

The following is what I just received yesterday in my 4th tote:

Brand/name: Noir wren v-panel tee

letote16

Brand/name: Tbags flowy printed tunic dress

letote17

Brand /name:Ā  Eight Sixty floral wrap blouse

letote18

Brand/name: Camilla crystalline collar necklace

letote19

Brand/name: Noir Luxe cluster ring

letote20

Since I just received these items, I haven’t gotten the chance to wear them out. But I tried them on and everything fits. My favorite item is the wrap blouse. I’m thinking about keeping this tote for my birthday vacay (in mid-May). Or should I send it back for something different? I won’t be able to judge how much I like these items until I wear them out. I already know I’m wearing the “dress” on Wednesday (my day off). I put the wordĀ dress in quotes because I’m wearing it with leggings. There is no way I’m wearing that as a dress! šŸ˜‰

Edited to add: I decided to keep all 5 items from this tote. I’m so in love with these pieces. The total was $141 for all 5 things.

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway if you are interested!
